Makeup Artist. Fabricator. Art Director
With roots from Costa Rica, I was raised in Miami, and moved to Brooklyn, NY to pursue a BFA in Film at Pratt Institute. After exploring various art mediums, I continued my education with a SFX degree at the Tom Savini Special Makeup Effects Program.
I refine my personal style in various mixed mediums through the exploration of the natural world, societies and cultures. The idea of ritual and worship drives much of my aesthetic as well as allows me to feel more connected with my roots.
Along with freelance fabrication and makeup effects for music videos, films and commercials; I continue to paint, draw, sculpt and design. I have styled various sets allowing me to practice my skills at fabrication and design, and including commercial and feature settings.
